A new web page launched by Indonesian Immigration Directorate-General, molina.imigrasi.go.id can make it easier for foreigners in China to extend their visa in Indonesia.TheImmigration Attache at the Indonesian Embassy in Beijing on Friday (3/2) said that thevisa extension can be done on the website.
Through the Foreigners Traffic Module (Molina), the visa extension can be done online so that applicants don’t need to visit immigration office in Indonesia. Before the service, the Visa on Arrival (VOA) or e-VOA holder must extend the visa at immigration office. Indonesia still implements visa on arrival to the Chinese citizens and from other countries, both offline and online (e-VOA).
The VOA expires in 30 days and can be extended once for 30 days. The new Molina website is connected with an electronic payment service that applies globally. This year, Indonesia aims for 253 thousand tourist visits from China. Since January 8, 2023, the Chinese government have allowed their people to go abroad for various purposes, such as tourism.
Indonesia is in the list of exemplary countries for group tourist sources from China that begins on Monday (6/2) according to the agenda set by the Chinese Cultural and Tourism Ministry.
